Not decanted, consumed over 2+ hours. Reading my January note, this was actually pretty consistent with where I thought it might be around now. Light to medium weight, cherry/strawberry fruit, just a little spicy, nice dry finish, respectable balance. Yes, this is simple, but I like that it goes with food, it's not a fruit bomb, it doesn't seem to have any RS or fake oak - all in all, it's a nice everyday wine not trying too hard to be something else. There might be stiffer QPR competition at $10-12, but I can get this for ~$7 at my local Vons right now, and I'll probably pick up a handful to keep around. 85-86.
